SCT Tuner ?

Hey folks,
I am interested in changing my tuner from the Edge Perf to the SCT from Innov Diesel. After reading that the Edge would harm my tranny. My question is, what do I have to do to make the swap ? I tow fairly often, and my 05 F250 is a daily driver, plower, but I like the performance tunes. Do I have to get my truck (dealer) flashed, then start with the SCT, or can I just unplug the Edge and load the SCT ?
My truck has an aftermarket intake and straight 4" pipes no kitty.
Also, is the "extreme power upgrade- $80+ " the one to go with ?

Thanks in advance for all your help...this site is fantastic !

Tom

definatly get an extreme tune then pick a tow or some other way less fun tune for the work. no need to get reflashed. just get rid of edge and call Innovative and tell Eric what you have and what your wanting to do and he will amaze you with the difference in a custom tuned sct and that old edge.

i would def do the change....

but before you install it remember that you need a set of guages....

i would not tow in the extreme tunes but you can easily change between tunes pretty quickly... i def recommend it...

here is our SCT/Gauge combo: SCT X3 Custom Innovative Diesel Tunning/ Gauge Combo Kit

let me know if you have any questions

Def get the Innovative tunes and definitely get the extreme upgrade, you will thank yourself later

One problem though... your rear tires are going to HATE you!

You might want to talk to Cale at BTS about his tunes for the 6.0 Only tuner I'd use on a 6.0.

I have half a mind to give Cale a call sometime and try out a file or two... Not that I need them, but its always nice to try something new.

Yea it's cool I just want to know why so maybe I can consider their tuning also. If the reason is good enough I'll give a call. If it's biased then I'll save my $.
